Insulation for Solid Concrete Ground Based Floors

Kingspan Kooltherm K3 Floorboard is a high performance, fibre-free rigid thermoset closed cell phenolic insulation core, sandwiched between two layers of tissue based facing autohesively bonded to the insulation core during manufacture.

Kingspan Kooltherm K3 Floorboard is manufactured without the use of CFCs/HCFCs and has zero Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP).

  • Made in Australia
  • Resistant to the passage of water vapour
  • Easy to handle and install
  • Fibre-free core

R-Values

Assumption and Key

The thermal calculations are taken through the construction profile with 150 mm concrete slab and Kingspan Kooltherm® K3 Floorboard. The R-values shown are Total R-values for the building element as required by the Energy Provisions of the National Construction Code, calculated in accordance with AS/NZS 4859.1:2002 Amdt.1.

Kingspan Kooltherm® products are manufactured, tested and packaged in conformance with AS/NZS 4859.1:2018
